Activism & Resistance Reading Group Bibliographies

Horizon, Manzel Bowman

Below are partial bibliographies from the discussions in our first two reading group sessions of the academic year. Unfortunately, the records from the first session were lost, hence the delay in posting a bibliography for the session as we have had to reconstruct what we can. Please note that in the case of the November session there is also a report available.
